We know the importance and value of prayer. As James 5:16 (NIRV) says: The prayer of a godly person is powerful. Things happen because of it.
Sometimes, though, we need a little help to find a routine and pray consistently — to make prayer a habit. I want to help you get intentional in your prayer life.
Each day I will provide you with an opportunity to practice prayer — to help you pray naturally. These will be simple, biblically-based prayer prompts with fill-in-the-blanks that you can personalize for yourself and your life.
Here is today’s prayer prompt:
The person of Jesus Christ is altogether powerful to change our lives in every aspect. But, how often do we focus on the richness of who Jesus is for us?
As we center on an aspect of our Savior each day, the prayer below will lead you to celebrate who you are in Jesus and help you become more Christ-like in your day-to-day living.
So remove every trace of your “leaven” of compromise with sin so that you might become new and pure again. For indeed, you are clean because Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us. 1 Corinthians 5:11 TPT
Father, thank you for the sacrifice Jesus made for me as our Passover Lamb. Thank you that I am clean and pure like fresh snow because of Jesus. Thank you that when I mess up, you offer me the opportunity to be made new again. Your mercies are available to me every moment of every single day. Amen
Father, I have been accepting standards in my behavior that are less than desirable in your eyes by ______________. Forgive me for _________________.
Ask God to show you one way you can change the way you behave today.
